What was your Net Metering end of the year bill like?

So far since April 15th, Im -448 kwh in the green. I still have to pay the $5.21 charge each month which totals to $62.52 at the end of the year for Minimum Charge Adjustment.

I figured the -448 x .15 cents comes out to $67.20, which I can use during the hot months when I fire up my Air Conditioning unit.

Were you guys able Zero out your Annual bill? If so how much more did you generate into the System? It kinda sucks that at the end of the annual cycle you have to start over.

I'll find out in Sept. May is the first month I've been generating more than I use.

You mean more than your tenants use?

Right, and they have no vested interest in actually saving energy, dolts!

On the SF Peninsula (warm side), my 3kW STC array produced a surplus of both $$$ and kWatt*hours...

Rate is PG&E E-7 (peak M-F noon to 6pm, off-peak otherwise).
http://www.pge.com/tariffs/pdf/E-7.pdf

Summer
Baseline Usage $0.29372 $0.08664

Winter
Baseline Usage $0.11472 $0.08966

From Sept 10, 2005 to Sept 9, 2006:

kWhrs from GT = 4720 kWhrs
PG&E balance = -$285.95 (in the "green" to me)

From the kWhr meter, 1 year:

Total Power Used: -1,200 kWhrs (generated more than I used)
Total Peak Power: -1,304 kWhrs (you can see, most of my surplus was Peak-time, I used about +104 kWhrs more than I generated off-peak)

This year, Sept-May 2006/7 vs 2005/6, my credit is:

-$127.16 vs -$61.18 (this year credit is better than last year at same time). It appears that much (if not all) is the result of my system generating about 200 kWhrs this Sept to date this year vs last year to date. (Oct 2005 was good, Oct 2006 was poor, April-May 2007 is great sun).

Looks like I bounce mostly around 8-10 kWHrs / day, except during winter if I crank up an electric space heater now and then instead of using natural gas (add a couple kWhrs per day for that).

Still have some power left over for that mythical electric car (or my wife who wants a portable A/C for those few weeks a year when it bumps near a 100F here).

I am new to the forum and solar panels. I am still trying to figure out what solar panels I am going to use but it is good to see how much energy solar panels can give.
